Mosart Tablet DR


Overview

Introduction

Mosart Tablet DR is an anti-inflammatory medicine used to treat a type of bowel disease known as ulcerative colitis. It helps to reduce symptoms such as diarrhea, bleeding and stomach pain by reducing inflammation in the bowel.

Mosart Tablet DR may also be used to treat another type of bowel disease known as Crohn’s ileocolitis. It should be taken with food. The tablets should be swallowed whole with water, do not break, crush or chew them. The dose will depend on what you are being treated for but take it exactly as your doctor prescribes. You should keep taking this medicine for as long as your doctor recommends. If you stop treatment too early your symptoms may come back and your condition may worsen.

The most common side effects of this medicine include nausea, diarrhea, stomach pain, headache, hair loss, itching, and flatulence. If these symptoms bother you, do not go away or get worse, tell your doctor. There may be ways of reducing or preventing them. Some people may get a severe allergic reaction which needs urgent medical attention. Contact your doctor immediately if you notice symptoms like swelling of the face, tongue, throat or lips, unusual bleeding, bruising, rash, fever, sore throat or excessive tiredness. 

Before taking it, tell your doctor if you have any kidney or liver problems or a blockage in your stomach. Your age may also be a factor in deciding whether this medicine is suitable. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should also consult their doctor before taking this medicine.
